Notes:
There's a new Cold War raging and its frontline warriors are Russian hackers - gang-members working freelance for the FSB, successor to the KGB. Massive thefts of personal information, electoral interference, catastrophic disruption of commercial and social services, banks, airlines, even whole countries disabled. Nicknamed 'Boot' because of his obsession with the Duke of Wellington and the battle of Waterloo, Edwin Coker is a case officer at the Vauxhall headquarters of MI6. When a young hacker falls into his hands and reveals details of a secret meeting, Boot conceives a daring plan to strike back - not with a computer virus of his own, but with a bomb that will seriously damage the Russian operation, spreading fear and distrust. Now Boot and his little team need a 'deniable' handler to deliver the explosives across the border from Estonia into Russia and bring the hacker back out.

Seymour adds far too much unnecessary, extraneous detail in his attempt to flesh out what is a perfectly sound basic narrative. It's something that's crept in to his later offerings but particularly this title, where I found myself skipping over whole paragraphs without losing anything of an otherwise good storyline/plot. John le Carré got away with the technique but Seymour hasn't quite got it. Being dragged away from the basic story, which is good enough by itself is annoying.

Not one of his best but a good story let down by its predictive but poor ending.
